Hi, my name is Conor Conroy and I joined UHY FDW in 2021. I studied the BA (Hons) in Accounting & Finance at Dundalk Institute Of Technology and graduated in October 2021 with a First-Class Honours Degree. I am currently studying towards the ACCA Accounting Qualification and have three Strategic Professional examinations left to complete.

I am really enjoying my time working in UHY FDW. Everyone in UHY FDW are extremely friendly and helpful. My work colleagues are very approachable and have been providing me with excellent training and mentorship since the day I arrived. I am getting exposure to a variety of clients from different industries which is allowing me to broaden my skillset. My supervisor is really helpful and provides me with essential feedback while completing jobs which has proven to be extremely valuable as this has allowed me to learn and grow my skillset.

UHY FDW also provides regular internal training regarding a range of topics including Audit Procedures, Accounts Preparation and relevant training concerning FRS and The Companies Act 2014. The internal training is very beneficial as it has allowed me to keep up to date with current accounting standards and the area of compliance with The Companies Act 2014.

The work life balance in UHY FDW is very good. They operate a flexi-time system which provides great flexibility in terms of balancing your work life with other commitments outside of work. They are very supportive in terms of pursing your professional qualification by offering financial assistance and extensive study leave periods which enables you to be in the best position possible regarding passing the examinations.

Overall, I am really enjoying my time in UHY FDW. I am very fortunate to be a part of a team that are very helpful and approachable. I am looking forward to developing my skills further under the direction and guidance of my supervisor.

Joined 2020

Hello, my name is Andrea Stanley, I am 22 years old and from Swords. I joined UHY FDW in 2020. I studied in national college of Ireland, and I graduated in 2020 receiving a 1.1 bachelor of honours degree in accounting and finance. I am currently studying for my four remaining professional exams with ACCA. I appreciate that I can proceed with my exams while working in UHY.

In UHY FDW we work in a smaller team, and this has given me great exposure to a variety of work, clients, and industries.

UHY is an office where we respect, we do teamwork, we do coffee and cake, and we have fun but not only these aspects we are friends. UHY has allowed me to progress with my career and continue to progress.

In my spare time, I play camogie and have played since I was young, I love watching the Dublin players play GAA and I enjoy spending time with friends.

Eloise Neba

Audit & Accounts Junior

Joined 2021

Hi, my name is Eloise and I joined UHY FDW in August 2021 as an accounts and audit Junior on a training contract. I graduated in 2020 with a bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Finance and then completed a masters in 2021 in accounting.

Prior to joining UHY, I had worked in retail for 4 years and had also gained experience working as an office administrator.

The main thing which attracted me to UHY FDW is the broad range of services on offer such as accounts preparation, audit, tax and consultancy. I was looking for an environment which could allow me to gain experience and knowledge in a wide variety of areas and UHY was the perfect fit.

My experience so far has been great. I didn’t expect to settle in so quickly, everyone is very approachable, friendly and supportive of each other. There is a nice mixture of professionalism and a friendly atmosphere in the office.

My mentor Stephen has been great. He has provided me with the necessary knowledge and guidance which has increased my confidence in the workplace. The firm has a wide variety of clients in different industries. I have gained experience preparing sole trader accounts and have also worked on limited companies.  I have been on a lot of charity audits and also got experience going on client site. I have team meetings every week discussing what has been completed on the list of clients I have been working on, if help is needed and what I plan to complete the following week. Staff training also occurs regularly which is really beneficial.

 

I am currently studying with the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) to complete the strategic professional exams. The work life balance is good as UHY FDW offer flexibility with working hours which enables me to plan my lecture and study hours during the day. It also allows me to part take in social activities outside the work environment such as dancing and cooking.

Going forward, I hope to complete my ACCA qualification within the next two years while gaining the necessary skills, knowledge and experience.

I am Aishwarya Pawar. I joined UHY FDW in January,2022. I have completed the Chartered Accountancy course from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India and CPA from CPA Ireland. I am currently studying for the Strategic Professional Level of ACCA.

The organisation has a positive working culture and learning environment which helps to continually improve your professional skills.

Paul Carroll

Audit & Accounts Senior

Joined 2017

Hi, my name is Paul Carroll and I did the summer internship programme with UHY FDW in 2017 & started full time here in 2018. I studied Accounting & Finance at Dundalk Institute of Technology for 3 years, followed by 3 years studying with the ACCA.

 

The office has a great vibe and there’s never a dull moment in UHY FDW. Through working in a team and regular social events there’s always something happening that’s exciting and bringing everyone together.

 

My supervisor is Martina Gribben and she is the Audit Director. She is excellent at communicating anything that needs to be explained and always pushes us to achieve more and better ourselves while working in a friendly environment. Working with her everyday I’m learning new skills that will forever stay with me as I progress in my career.

 

I’m a friendly, outgoing and sporty person so having the ability to work in a friendly environment on a team makes it that I’m never out of my comfort zone. Outside of work I’m heavily involved in sport. I play GAA with my local club Roche Emmets and play golf in both Dundalk golf club and Ardee golf club.  Thankfully in UHY FDW we have flex-time, which allows me to maintain a work life balance and enjoy my social activities, whether that be playing golf or making it to training in the evenings.

Emily Doyle

Audit & Accounts Junior

Joined 2021

My name is Emily Doyle, I’m 24 years old, and I began working with UHY FDW in August 2021. I originally went to college in Galway, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Law and Geography from the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG). I worked for three and a half years in Spar as a retail supervisor during this time and throughout the Covid pandemic. It was the pandemic alongside moving home from Galway that led me to evaluate my future, and I decided a career with numbers was something more suited to me than my degree or continuing in retail. I signed up to the Chartered Accountants of Ireland, registered for the CAP 1 exams, applied for an opening as a trainee accountant with UHY FDW and the rest is history! I have been working alongside my manager Jason Murphy in both the Dundalk and Balbriggan offices and enjoy mixing with and getting to know all the staff. I’m currently studying for my CAP 1 exams in May, but in my free time I also enjoy walking, listening to podcasts, and watching Grey’s Anatomy!

Emmanuel Ibeh

Audit & Accounts Junior

Joined 2020

Hi, I’m a Trainee Accountant that recently joined the UHY FDW team in 2020. I spent 3 years studying Commerce in UCD before graduating in September 2020. During my time in UCD I specialised in the area of Accounting & Finance as I had a keen interest in accountancy from my Leaving Cert days. After graduation, I sought to obtain my professional qualification as a Chartered Accountant and I applied for the trainee accountant role at UHY. Outside of work, I love playing football. I also enjoy gaming during my spare time.

One of the benefits of working at UHY FDWis that we are exposed to a wide range of clients in both their size and industry. UHY FDW also provides us the opportunity to work side-by-side with experienced accountants within the company, which goes a long way when studying for exams or furthering your practical knowledge. Working at UHY FDW, you feel part of a bigger family which is one of things I’ve loved since starting here.
